    Faf got busted during the 2nd test Dubai against Pakistan in 2013. Smith, Petersen, Elgar, Kallis, Steyn, de Villiers, Duminy, Philander, Morkel and Tahir all played.

    Next was time Faf got busted was during the 2nd test in Hobart against Australia in 2026. Elgar, Cook, Duminy, du Plessis, Amla, de Kock, Bavuma, Maharaj, Abbott and Philander played.

    Both Steyn and Smith played in one of the tests. Question still stands though; were the leadership and bowling groups of those two sides in on the ball tampering?

    Probably. They weren't so f***ing stupid as to try to smuggle a piece of bright yellow sandpaper onto the field to do it with though.

    It's not as if you can't get white sandpaper either that you could try and pass off as chewing gum. Even brown on one side could at least look like Elastoplast from a distance.

    And the cameras were on high alert, which even the audience thousands of kms away were aware of. They deserved the suspension for stupidity alone.

    The umps didn't even change the ball after we got caught either and if I remember the ball didn't reverse so how shit do you have to be to use sandpaper on the ball and still not get any benefit out of it?

    Simon Katich has revealed the real reason he grabbed Michael Clarke by the throat
    in the SCG dressing rooms in 2009.

    It’s been widely reported that Katich was furious that Clarke was trying to rush the singing of the team victory song so he could leave the sheds and be with then-fiancee Lara Bingle.

    However Katich has now opened up about the ‘personal’ insult from Clarke that made him snap.

    “There’s been a fair bit said about it, I won’t deny that it happened,” Katich said on SEN Radio on Sunday.

    “It was partly to do with the singing of the team song and the pressure that he was putting on Michael Hussey to really get on with it and get on with the night. That probably led to our altercation.

    “But a big part of it from my point of view was what he said to me and the personal nature of what he said.


    “I can’t repeat that on the show unfortunately because I’m sure there are some ladies out there listening.”

    Katich said he doesn’t regret standing up for himself, but quickly tried to smooth things over with the help of captain Ricky Ponting and coach Tim Nielsen.

    “What was said was said and I reacted accordingly. I can’t take that back now. I don’t regret standing up for myself because I certainly wasn’t going to sit there and listen to what he was saying in front of my teammates,” Katich said.

    “I certainly apologised to my teammates for seeing him storm out and not come back for the song later on.

    “As soon as it happened I spoke to Ricky Ponting and our coach Tim Nielsen about trying to make sure that there wasn’t any issue with it moving forward and Michael assured them and me that wouldn’t be the case.

    “But whenever something like that happens to that nature there’s always going to be, I guess, both parties are going to feel that they’re in the right or the wrong.

    “It was a small part of my career. I don’t look back on my career and judge myself on what happened in the dressing room.”

    Just on Katich,

    Oh for the days when we had the luxury of junking an opener with 4000 runs @ 45, 10 centuries and 25 fifties.

    Clarke called him a weak campaigner.
    That's been reported before hasn't it ?

    I didn't agree with his axing at the time but yes, hard to believe in this current climate.

    Michael Clarke was a cancer on the Australian cricket team.

    It's a fascinating cultural war. There are people on one side that think that traditions are the single most important thing.

    Traditions such as singing the song, only when the "custodian" decides. All eleven players wearing the baggy green onto the field at the start of the game. People such as Katich and S Waugh are clearly in this camp.

    The other side. People like Clarke and Warne think it's all a bit of jingoistic shit.

    I don’t buy into nonsense traditions but I do buy into respect. It was Hussey’s last match, a genuine good person, you show respect and hang around until he’s ready to say goodbye. Clarke comes across as a shit bloke to me, Katich not so much, that tends to guide my views.

    The idea Smith wasn’t in on it from the start is media spin

    Was the song/throat thing Michael Hussey's last test?

    Wasn't part of the issue that Huss had his family and kids there and would have preferred to stay in the rooms with them and his team mates whereas Clarke wanted the team to head off to a party on a yacht. Not really a family friendly event

    Can't remember if I'm mixing up my stories

    Two different things - the Katich/Clarke incident was the last test against South Africa in 09 and Hussey's last test and the boat incident was against Sri Lanka in 2013.

    I've just reread the pertinent parts in Dan Brettig's whitewash to whitewash - Clarke comes off much worse in the Katich incident than the Hussey incident - the Hussey incident was miscommunication in that when he was first approached Michael was keen to go, but his wife wasn't. By the time the Hussey clan had decided not to go, Clarke and a few others were already on the boat.

    I like Andrew McDonald's response, apparently when someone apologised to him for the incident he's supposed to have said something along the lines of not to worry this sort of thing happens in the Victorian dressing room all the time.

    Warner was the fall guy
    Smith the brains of the operation

    They look more like the three stooges than they do cricket players

    Wonder if he still tapes his fingers daily? Not sure why you need half you hand taped when fielding, unless you want reverse swing....

    Based on your time in and around the Australian dressing room obviously.

    F*** off mate. You know no more about it than me or the next bloke in here.
